A nickel has a smooth edge. No ridges.
Brushed nickel has a brushed dull finish. Polished nickel has a smooth shiny surface.
It has a smooth edge because it's worn, not because of a minting error. Silver-alloy coins were softer than modern copper-nickel ones and they wore out a lot faster. That means it's only worth its silver value, about $2.75 as of 10/2009
A dime is smaller than a nickel. A nickel is worth less than a dime. A dime has a ridged side, while a nickel is smooth and thicker.
silver can be as smooth or as rough as the refining process makes it
In the game
Silver can be smooth or rough, depending on how the refining process makes it.
I have a Canadian Dime 1980 with smooth edges too but have no idea how much it is worth
A quarter is bigger than a nickle. Also, a quarter has ridges all around the edge whereas a nickel has smooth edges
cool,nice,smooth,loner,but it can have companions
There are no ridges on a US Penny or the US Nickel, the edges are smooth.
If someone has a silver tongue, they are very glib, a smooth talker.
It could be a error in the printing of the coin but it is a v nickel.
silver is responsible for reflecting property of mirror.in old times smooth silver pieces were used as mirrors but they got corroded easily .

This tradition goes back hundreds of years. Coins made of precious metal have ridges or lettering on the edges so unscrupulous people cannot scrape a few cents worth of gold off the edge to sell and then spend the coin for its full value. Base metal such as nickel, copper, aluminum, and zinc have such a low value it would not be worth your time to 'shave' a nickel. Even though dimes, quarters, and half dollars are no longer made of silver the edge reeding has been retained. The Anthony and Sacagawea Dollars have smooth edges but the Presidential Dollars have lettered edges.
Because it is a metal and can be polished to a smooth shiny surface.
Wood, almost anything that is shiny.
It will stick to almost anything smooth and hard
The smooth edge means that the coin is either quite worn or someone had a file and too much time on their hands. Either way, Kennedy halves are so common that in circulated condition they're pretty much worth their metal value only:1964: About 1/3 of the current price of an ounce of silver1965-69: About 1/7 the price of an ounce of silver1971-present: 50 cents. These coins are copper-nickel, not silver.
The rough ER has little things called ribosomes attached to it, the smooth ER does not have anything attached like this
Silver commodities are just what they sound like: the metal silver. Someone trading silver as a commodity rather than a precious metal is going to make a product from the silver, so they buy it in ingots. Precious metal traders buy bullion coins. If you're an industrial silver user, you can request your silver be made into whatever size ingot you want--within reason, of course; you're not too likely to order a 20,000-pound silver ingot even if you need that much metal--that it be alloyed with various metals to change its characteristics, or anything else you need to make your production as smooth as possible.
